Abstract

The research was designed to study farmers' knowledge and perception on pest management and pesticide, their practices on pesticide usage. The research also attempted to find out the factors affecting pesticide applied by farmers. The results showed that they could not recognize the kinds of pest enemies very well while about 80% of them have never heard about IPM. In addition, although almost all farmers have known the negative effect of pesticide hazards on their health, only 86.9% of them always use protective things during pesticide spraying. The study also showed that farmers' farm experience and extension service have negative relationship with the amount of pesticide used by farmers. In the other words, these factors partly make farmers reduce their pesticide usage.
